. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc

accomplished for the very -- to the various speakers from michelle obama and the headliners, michelle obama and bill clinton joe biden, barack obama and a lot of the secondary speakers. mission accomplished. they also had to -- at the same time, while they were at it, sort of a secondary goal is make sure the people understood what lies they had heard in tampa and what the truth really was. i think that mission was accomplished as well. so huge success i believe in getting the message out. they were really focused. they were really on message. when it comes to the speakers, you know, the evening the major speakers were all there between 10:00 and 11:00 east coast time. 7:00 to 8:00 on the west coast. but there were -- the secondary speakers, it was funny. each night, there was sort of one person that blew the place up and really lit the place up. and became an instant star. the first night was duvall patrick, governor of massachusetts. the night after him so wednesday night was congressman emmanuel clever from maryland and l

of suffers, i'm afraid, it suffers by comparison both to bill clinton's speech and michelle obama's speech but also to the two speeches we remember most from the past two conventions where barack obama did world historical barn burners in 2008 and 2004. >> world historical barn burners. eamon, i want to ask you, we talked a lot about we are talking about bumps and sort of the net-net for the president and the democrats coming out of the dnc. the jobs numbers that we got this morning are not great ones. the fact that the unemployment rate has ticked down is of course good but there are mitigating factors there. tell us what you think the effect is on the labor scene as it affects the president going into the final stretch before november. >> well, no doubt about it, this was a lousy jobs number. i'm kind of a silver lining kind of guy and i always look for the silver linings. i can't really find one here. 96,000 new jobs created might sound like a lot, but that's below expectations of about 125,000, and remember, you need to add about 100,000 to 120,000 just to tread water to keep up with p

, ann romney was an asset. michelle obama, who was polarizing in the first campaign, she said a few things, she probably didn't mean them the way they came across, but at one point she said i've never been more proud about my country. she has redeemed herself. republicans concede this point with her work with military families. >> i think both of these women had a job and i don't know why it's always the woman's job to humanize the husband. but be that as it may. but they had to kind of lift the veil, if you will, talk about who their husbands really are as the chief character witness, which wives are. >> they also talked about the choices that they have. they also talked about making sure that you don't slam the door behind you. when you moved up to the next rung of laer of success and we're all in this together. michelle obama especially, the first lady talked about an appeal to moms across the country. >> i thought they were both terrific. they're both a great credit to their husbands and families and to their country. are we ending on a point of consensus? i think we are. thank
